I apparently started using Akismet (the WordPress spam “catcher”) at some point. I don’t remember signing up for up, but it’s not costing me anything and I they catch things like this comment:

“I not to mention my friends happened to be reviewing the excellent key points found on your web blog while all of a sudden developed a terrible feeling I never expressed respect to the web site owner for those techniques. All the ladies appeared to be totally very interested to read through them and now have very much been taking advantage of these things. Thanks for truly being indeed thoughtful and also for utilizing this form of ideal resources millions of individuals are really desperate to be informed on. Our own honest regret for not saying thanks to sooner.”

I think I’ll keep the program running.

 

This is not even the way people who speak/use English as a second language phrase things. It’s just lunacy.

 

This is the sad part: if this type of thing didn’t work, the spammers would quit doing it. Sad.
